Record #188253:

Painting with ice / Lucy Dodwell.

Title: Painting with ice / Lucy Dodwell.
Author(s): Dodwell, Lucy.
Date: 2008.
In: New Scientist. (2008.), Vol. 201(2692) (2008)
Abstract: Brief report prompted by exhibition of "frizions", images created by NASA scientist and artist Peter Wasilewski using polarised light and ice. Process involves placing Petri dish of ice in process of freezing between two polarising filters. Birefringence causes passage of white light through sandwich to create colourful images determined by crystal structure and thickness of ice. Notes inspiration from artist's studies of samples of blue ice from Transantarctic mountains.
Notes:

New Scientist. Vol. 201(2692) :58 (2008).

Keywords: 551.5 -- Meteorology.
551.322 -- Ice and snow.
